  2. As you have installed and activated the JetPack plugin on your install, and you posted the relevant URL(s) into a forum thread, Staff will do the transfer of both subscribers and stats for you. I have tagged this thread for their attention. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. Thank you so much! :-)

  24. I have just check and they have disapeared! All of them O_O

    That page shows the subscribers for your site. Those subscribers were moved to your jetpack connected self-hosted site. That is why there are zero there now. The subscribers cannot exist in two places at once.

    Keep in mind that only and email subscribers can be migrated. Followers who foll via Facebook or Twitter cannot be migrated because we do not have any control over Facebook or Twitter users. However, once you have your new site reconnected to those networks, one can assume that those followers will be following you once again.

  25. Hello @rootjosh, I know that, i am not worried about socual media followers, I am concerned about wordpress and email followers. When I access site stats of jetpack plugin, it shows only 1 wordpress follower and 22 email followers. The page you show me shows a different count (83 wordpress and 161 email) and yesterday the original site stats page, on, showed 232 wordpress followers and 151 email followers.

    I don't understand

  26. Hello @rootjosh, I have just checked the url you give me yesterdey without the last part: and it belongs to other blog: So I supose you have transfered followers to Is that right? Can be undone?


  27. Okay, so I've figured this out.

    The account you are posting from has a domain Jetpack connected site. However, much to my confusion, it is not the right one.

    The correct Jetpack site is connected via another user account.

    Since I need both sites connected under the same site to transfer followers, you are going to need to do one of two things:

    1. Disconnect Jetpack and reconnect with the account that you are posting from.


    2. Log into with the other account and post a migration request confirmation on this thread.

  28. @rootjosh ok, done. I have connected jetpack to my account.

    Thanks for your help :)

  29. Hooray! Now I think we're getting somewhere. Give me a few minutes to run the migration again and we'll cross our fingers.
